Yeah that's the US carrier Sprint's version of Hero coming in a few weeks.

EDIT: And also phones like these that make good use of internet frequently, should really be bought with a internet package deal.
Yes you can add that as an extra, but it's something you should take note of if you are in the market of getting one of these smart phones.

I've got a Magic - don't even consider an Android handset without unlimited data as either you'll disconnect data and it won't be worth using or you'll get a hefty bill when you find out that it's been connected to the internet almost constantly for the last month.

V. good deal, orange has it for 36/mo for 18.

IMHO I think this is a better deal:
dialaphone.co.uk/bas…s=1
OK, original outlay is higher but you get more minutes, data is inclusive, it's auto cashback, direct bill credit and the Quidco is higher a £50. Will be £32.22 less the Quidco. You add data to this deal and you're spending as much anyway.

Grat phone BTW. I got one direct from Orange, phoned up & they beat the Carphonewarehouse offer. They gave me free phone, 1200 Minutes, unlimited texts & 500MB of internet per month, for £30.
24month contract tho. Make sure you get a tarriff that includes a good Internet, or it's going to be expensive to use half the phones features!!

What's the point of getting a 2 year deal. Within 6 months the phone will be 1/4 of the price it is now.
It's cheap to buy the device on ebay then get a cheaper contract for 12 months.

The cost of the tarriff I got is only £5 a month more than a sim only deal, so even 24 x £5 = £120 ,is pretty good. The Phone's themselves are £370 ish, and I doubt that will drop by 75% in 6 months ...

How do i add internet to this? I can't find an option? Or do you have to ring orange after ordering the phone?

I think it's a 4.99 a month extra, usually from Orange. I would chace my arm and phone up Orange and see if they can beat/match the price and throw in Internet access. Their sales people are able to give substantive discounts. :thumbsup:

I already tried that and was told that the phone was too expensive to match this deal. Shame really, I tried to give them my business, and I don't really want to go through a third party like phones4u.

You'll have to add it after then via Orange direct and I think it's £7.50 pcm then.

Are you sure? It says £4.89 on the orange website?

Picture is misleading.

It's £5 for 500MB (I recently added it).

Both this and the dialaphone deals are good.

this is an excellent phone - i have had it for a month or so in the form of g2 touch on tmobile. i pay £32 for flext 35 and web n walk plus which gives me 3gb data allowance.

the orange one at 500mb data might not be enough.

Cheapest deal I can see for 18 months is £30 and doesn't include data, so realistically you're talking £35 a month.
Where's the 18 month £25 deal?
